Ben Affleck doesn’t give a f–k about the critics. The Oscar winner joked about his recent curse-filled appearance on Bill Simmons’ HBO series, Any Given Wednesday, via Twitter on Thursday, June 23.
“For those of you keeping score at home, I gave exactly 18 f–ks about my Pats. Upon reflection, 12 probably would have been sufficient,” Affleck, 43, tweeted to his 2 million–plus followers.
“We Boston fans have always been known for our subtlety,” he continued. “One of my favorite interviews; hope you get to see the entire episode. #GoPats.”
Hours earlier, the Boston native raised eyebrows when he gave a bizarre interview on the sports talk show about Tom Brady’s 2015 Deflategate scandal.
As previously reported, the New England Patriots quarterback, 38, was suspended in May 2015 for knowing that Patriots staffers had tampered with footballs before the team played the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC Championship Game. The dad of three fought to overturn the decision, and it eventually was by a Manhattan federal judge. Back in April, however, the suspension was reinstated by the Second U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. Brady will sit out the first four games of the 2016 season.
“Deflategate is the ultimate bulls–t f–king outrage of sports ever. It’s so f–king stupid that I can’t believe it,” Affleck told Simmons, 46. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star even defended Brady’s decision not to hand over his cellphone to be searched.
“I would never give an organization as leak-prone as the NFL my f–king cellphone so you can just look through my emails and listen to my voice mails,” Affleck said. “Maybe it’s just funny, lovely sex messages from his wife [Gisele Bündchen],” he continued. “Maybe Tom Brady is just so f–king classy and such a f–king gentleman that he doesn’t want people to know that he may have reflected on his real opinion of some of his coworkers.”
